All is not well inside Fox News.
The newsroom is far more divided than people think.
And this Fox News host just picked a fight that Tucker Carlson is going to hate.
Geraldo Rivera is one of the most outspoken liberals on Fox News.
Rivera took a potshot at some of his colleagues at Fox complaining that vaccinated hosts opposed Joe Biden’s federal vaccine mandates – as well as other mandates at the state and local level – and whined that his fellow Fox colleagues still believe America is a free country.
“Nothing is more contemptible than vaccinated commentators urging their unvaccinated followers to fight (and die) for their freedom. It’s like the punk-safe on the street-urging the guy in the ledge to jump,” Rivera wrote on social media.
Although no one knows Tucker Carlson’s vaccination status – it’s really none of anyone’s business – Carlson is the leading voice on Fox News defending the traditional American idea of medical freedom and allowing citizens to make medical decisions they feel are of their best interests without the government forcing a needle in their arms.
Vaccine zealots like Rivera often confuse opposing mandates for opposing vaccines.
Many Americans took the COVID vaccine because they spoke with their doctor, considered their risk from a bad outcome if they contract coronavirus and took the vaccine.
Vaccinated hosts at Fox News took the jab of their own free will.
But they oppose the government forcing injections into the arms of the public because once the government eliminates the principle of bodily autonomy the state now owns you.
Many of Joe Biden’s own statements and decisions also lead many to realize this vaccine mandate is not about public health.
Biden falsely claimed the vaccinated needed protection from the unvaccinated.
The mandates Biden imposed on the military do not in any meaningful way allow for soldiers to request religious exemptions.
And Biden’s mandate makes no allowance for natural immunity despite the fact that studies from England and Israel show that the immune response generated by recovering from a previous COVID infection is stronger than the immune response generated by the vaccines.
Instead, Biden’s mandate is about control.
If Biden can control your body by forcing you to stick a needle in your arm to take a vaccine you may not need or want, you no longer live in a free society.
At that point the government can force you to do anything.
That’s why Fox News hosts that chose to be vaccinated opposed mandating shots in arms.
Liberals like Rivera can never accept this simple distinction many Americans that oppose vaccine mandates make.
Instead, Rivera decided to make a fool out of himself on social media.
